All the King's Men

PE 1117.L23 n.137
Robert Penn Warren “The air so still it aches like the place where the tooth was on the morning after you’ve been to the dentist or aches like your heart in the bosom when you stand on the street corner waiting for the light to change and happen to recollect how things once were and how they might have been yet if what happened had not happened.” (1) 1
國王的人馬

874.57/867
Robert Penn Warren 自1946年出版至今,美國讀者對這本小說的好評就一直持續不斷。本書是華倫以1930年代美國歷史上極具爭議性、被暱稱為「Kingfish」的路易斯安那州州長休伊‧朗(Huey Pierce Long)的生平為基礎,塑造出主角人物威利‧史塔克,並藉著書中另一角色傑克‧伯登的敘述角度,旁觀描寫原本沒沒無聞的美國南方農家子弟威利‧史塔克的從政之路。(博客來) 1
A confederacy of dunces

PS 3570.O54C66 2011
John Kennedy Toole John Kennedy Toole's novel appeared eleven years after his tragic suicide in 1969, but that did not mean that his hilarious, pulitzer-prize-winning novel about a New Orleans simpleton would not go unnoticed. One of the best “modern” adaptations of the immortalized Don Quixote, the adventures of the main character Ignatius J.Reilly present New Orleans in all its most wondrous, carnivalesque variety. (2) 2
笨蛋聯盟

874.5754 /823.1 (lost-1)
John Kennedy Toole 《笨蛋聯盟》是約翰.甘迺迪.涂爾的代表作,也是美國文壇唯一一部在作者過世後才獲得普立茲獎的小說。涂爾生前寫作此書可謂嘔心瀝血,卻始終乏人問津,終抑鬱而逝;之後,其母為此書四處奔走,尋覓知音,終在十一年後獲出版社青睞,出版後,它跌破眾人眼鏡瘋狂暢銷,並獲得普立茲小說大獎。涂爾以插科打諢的反諷手法,透過一個與現實格格不入的角色,折射出現代社會的種種不公不義,與個人理想的失落。在他筆下,我們看到現代人的喧譁激情、笑罵悲喜;看到他人的身影,似也見到自我存在的無奈。(博客來) 2
Interview With The Vampire

PZ 4.R494I57
Anne Rice This 1976 novel by Anne Rice transformed vampires from the bow-tie-and-cape- wearing version of old-timey black-and-white movies to the sexy, conflicted, brooding beasts we know of today. Rice’s novel, which was adapted into a 1994 movie featuring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, tells the story of the vampire Louis de Pointe du Lac and his creator, Lestat. (3) 3
